Assuming you live in MT, contact your state agency that deals with ADA issues. They will be able to provide definitive info, and possibly take up your case. If you hunt MT as non-resident, you are a guess and should abide by their rules, and not complain. You should have no input/say. In that case, hunt in your state with X-bow, or another state that permits it for non-residents. If you are a MT resident formerly from CA, trying to change MT laws to your CA loonie ways, then go back to CA. Every win has to start with one RESIDENT person saying, "ENOUGH!!" It's about time some resident American Patriot did same regarding Socialist/Xiden tyrannical directions.
hes a non resident

Same can be said with a rifle


A variable powered scope gives much advantage over a fixed power...a scope with turrets give an advantage over a scope without...a rangefinder combined with a ballistics app combined with a turret scope gives a major advantage over everything and is capable of making 600 yard shots with less practice than someone needs with a crossbow at 50 yards
Slippery slope...don't throw stones when you live in a glass house.

thanks for your answer but the the time of the year the archery season is open is so nice to be in the mountains with elk bugling. as far as tracking a wounded animal my son , friend and myself are very good trackers maybe better than many others ? my handi cap is my shoulders for drawing a bow anymore.
life is tough deal with it montana isn't going to change is laws because it sos nice to be in the mountains with bulging elk
you can hike you can drive you can track then you can draw a BOW don't like our laws THEN STAY OUT OF OUR STATE
I know you kinda got beat up and I didn’t read the whole thread, so I’m going to ask you a question. Bear with me, say you weren’t handicapped in a way that would prevent you from using a compound bow. Do you think that using a X-bow would give you an advantage over using a compound?
HE CAN use a traditional bow its just EASIER for him to use a cross bow so he wants to sue montana because we won't change our laws to suit him

Not trying to steer away from the OP, but this sentiment is garbage. And as someone who hunts multiple states every year, spending thousands of my hard earned dollars in your state I might add, I’m sick of being called an “idiot” or that we non-residents “screw up your hunting”. Last time I checked Montana received more than $9.3 billion in federal aid. That’s not including all the revenue us non-residents contribute to your state’s economy.

Don’t get me wrong, I understand you being protective of your state. I don’t want people from outside my state telling me how to live in mine either. I’m just sick of being looked down like I’m doing something wrong when all I want to do is hunt.
then come hunt but don't come here and threaten to sue us because we won't change our laws to make it EASIER for you
which is exactly what the op wants

It's been going on for a long time, and it will continue. IMHO X-bows will be legal in MT. Maybe not tomorrow, but it will come. It all comes down to hunter recruitment (dollars).
they are legal just not during bow season and that WONT BE CHANGEING anytime soon

Thats all. 3 months! Is that all seasons together or just archery? Either way not that much. Unless you are talking elk as i am talking deer. Then totally different. Obviously we dont have them.

Nj depending on what zone you are hunting archery starts in September and ends somewhere in February. With a few weeks off for shotgun or muzzleloader.
with all seasons combines montanas season is 6 months long august to febuary

Ignorance is bliss. Crossbows dont/wont do that.

Also i do believe sometime in the future it will make it to MT. It can be awhile but it has a high probability of eventually getting there. Lots of states said crossbows wont come to their state and they are. Just never say never. I have zero interst in this and dont care one way or the other. I wish everyone a happy healthy year.
